in san francisco for 60 years. i'm not taking an official position on this ordinance but i would like to take this opportunity to question whether the gay community in supporting this ordinance has even discussed the subject of a dead gay man who died in 1999. i think the time used for this discussion on this ordinance would have been better used to find out why this gay man, who was a city employee at san francisco general hospital, and he worked side by side with me, why the city has actively in my opinion blunted any inquiry into his death. and i would urge that the owners of this bar do the public service by asking why any supervisor for this district so far has refuetzd to step forward and ask what happened to joseph malison, why was this gay man in my opinion bullied and forced to die a gruesome death while a city employee. it's been 13 years and some people i know down in new orleans said that there's such a thing as a curse and maybe the curse of joe might be one of the reasons why the gay community has not been flourishing during the last 13 years. thank you. >> next speak
